Here are a few hints, tips and tricks on how to find your way around the NWN Game engine and onto our beloved little Island, nestled somewhere between the currents of the Trackless Sea.
Arelith Direct Connect IP
Use following "IP" address in the Direct Connect Field of your NWN Game:
game.arelith.com:5123 (Cordor Server)
game.arelith.com:5124 (Surface Server)
game.arelith.com:5125 (Underdark Server)
game.arelith.com:5126 (Fix Level Server)
You can see, whether the servers are up, and who is playing these days at our Portal Website
You have just bought NWN Diamond Edition off of GOG (Good Old Games), and cannot log into our Server...
Good Old Games delivers the Game with a Standard Single Player CD Key. In order to connect to Arelith, you will need to get a Multiplayer Key. GoG has set up a support page to request one. Follow their instructions here:

I have heard, they have already included the Critical Rebuild, that allows NWN to run on more modern Windows versions. In case this does not work, and you need to re-run the critical rebuild, you can download that one from here:
Critical Rebuild 1.69
Now you have the game, and can login. How do I get Forum Access?
Once you were able to create an account and character in the game, use the console command:
-forum_password PASSWORD where 'PASSWORD' is your desired password for the forums.
Our Server Database is linked to the Forum. You cannot create a forum account without being on the Arelith Server.
Wait, I can't register on the Forums, but I have CD Key issues, can't login for other reasons, or need to appeal a ban, etc. - What do I do?
Send an Email to arelith [dot] dm [at] gmail [dot] com
Are there other forms of OOC Communication?
Yes. We do have a chat room (albeit a fairly quiet one) on IRC.
(or use irc.mibbit.net with mIRC or similar program - #arelith is the room)
I still can't log in, and I constantly find myself crashing. What do I do?
There are several potential solutions, if all of the above has not been the core of the issue.
a) Change your ports. Normally, they only have to be different when more than one member of the household are playing the game, but experience has shown, that even when you are alone, often, changing your gaming port actually helps. How do that?
Check our How to Change my Port Wiki Entry ...
b) make sure, you have Shiny Water in your came engine switched off
c) make sure, you are playing in compatibility mode, if you are using a Windows System 7 or newer. How do do that?
- Right Click on your NWN-Exe, and go to properties. You will find a tab there, that will tell you to "always run as administrator". You will also find an option there, to run in compatibility mode. Chose Windows XP SP 2 or 3 .. both should work just fine and dandy. Apply the changes. Done.
